Mitch Mitchell dead

The Jimi Hendrix Experience:
Mitch Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix and Noel Redding.

Mitch Mitchell, drummer in the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has been found dead in his US hotel room.

He was discovered in the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon, in the early hours of Wednesday. A medical examiner told Associated Press news agency the death appeared to be from natural causes but that there would be an autopsy. Mitch Mitchell was 61.

Jimi Hendrix died in 1970 and the band's bassist Noel Redding died in 2003.

And it's over to Offenbach, Germany, May 18, 1967 to watch and hear Stone Free, Purple Haze and Hey Joe!

Wow. News travels fast. This hotel is across the street from where I work. Sad to loose him, but at least he went out playing as his last gig just earlier that night.
